New Music: Lou The Human “Make You Sick”

Lou the Human, the scrappy young rapper from Staten Island, has kept up a steady stream of new music since dropping his debut project Humaniac! back in October 2017. Songs like “Play Your Part” and “Speak of the Devil” delivered more of the delinquent raps that made Danny Brown and J.I.D into Lou fans. Meanwhile, last year’s “Empty Bottle” showcased a spacier, more emo-influenced side to his sound, which isn’t surprising considering he was bumping “a lot of sad rock” as a kid before he got i...

Babygirl – “Over In No Time”

The compound word babygirl makes me think of Timbaland rapping about being "the man from the big VA" on Aaliyah's timeless classic "Are You That Somebody?" However, the Toronto duo Babygirl pull from a different sort of retro pop. Glossy guitar sounds, breathy vocals, and a sleek heartbeat pulse put "Over In No Time," the … More »

'It Devours!' Is Little More Than a Clever Addition to Welcome to Night Vale's franchise

The greatest thrill of the podcast Welcome to Night Vale , since its debut in 2012, has been its ability to methodically and clearly create an alternate world equal parts chaotic, chilling, mundane, and emotionally nostalgic. The premise is deceptively simple. The host, Cecil Gershwin Palmer (also main character and narrator) is voiced by actor/performer Cecil Baldwin in a deep, hypnotic style suitable to NPR weekend storytelling shows. He gives news accounts and obse...

5 Of Aaliyah's Most Iconic Beauty Looks

On my first day of fifth grade, my teacher asked the class to share who their favorite famous person was — and my hand shot right up into the air. "Khalea, the one who loves Aaliyah " was my identity for the beginning of the school year... and up until August 25, 2001, when the singer passed away in a fatal plane crash. Even though it's been 16 years since her untimely death, it's impossible to forget about the singer and actress (who would've turned 39 today). We all miss her, but thankfully, ...

The 15 Best Soul/R&B Albums of 2017

Jessie Ware was reportedly so desperate to finish Glasshouse before having a baby this year that she moved from songwriting partner to songwriting partner with something of reckless abandon. The thing is, it worked. Collaborating with everyone from Ed Sheeran to Ryan Tedder to Samuel Preston, the result wasn't only one of the best pop-R&B albums of the year, but it was al...

7 Ways To Wear Cargo Pants (Yes, Cargo Pants)

Why The Aaliyah x MAC Collection Is So Important

Growing up as a Black and Latina teenager in a mostly-white private school in Baltimore, I was self-conscious about my thick hair, bushy eyebrows, and strict parents who wouldn’t let me buy the heavy makeup many of my classmates were already wearing. For one “casual dress” day in the eighth grade, when we were allowed to venture outside the confines of our plaid and khaki uniforms, I chose to wear baggy Gap jeans, a Tommy Hilfiger T-shirt, and my brother's Yankees baseball cap backward, with a ...
